Daily Dose of Awesome

While looking for something else, I ran across this blog by Jodie Leigh, a grade 4/5/6 English teacher in the small fly-in Arctic village of Tasiujaq – which is on the Ungava Bay coast of Nunavik. (View map) The theme of her blog is a "Daily Dose of Awesome." Sometimes 'awesome' is what the rest of us take for grated: "Awesome was going to the Co Op after school to find that cargo had been delivered (last week’s 4-day blizzard meant 4 days with no plane, which further meant slim pickings on the produce shelf). I bought celery, leeks, carrots peppers and tomatoes." Sometimes 'awesome' is pretty special. "there was a knock on my door. I opened it to find my friend and her daughter. With a big smile, she said 'We brought you fish!' and handed me an entire arctic char." (Pictured) I have to say, I love the approach, and this is a blogger who should receive some kind words from around the world. And, I'll also say, this is what makes the internet great. Nothing makes my day better than running across some totally random person who is doing something awesome. The world is full of such people, and I for one am glad of it.
